Condor Classico

I saw a Condor Classico recently and was curious to hear about the bike. Any plusses or minuses about the frame quality, how stiff or soft does it ride, paint quality etc.

They're good bikes but definitely go in for a test ride and chat.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

I live in Houston, Texas and there are no LBS that carry this brand. I would have to order one without having the chance to ride one. That is why I was hoping to hear from some who may have one or have ridden one before to tell me about the bike. They look good, I just don't know much about them.

Sorry I can't help more - try emailing them to either ask about classico owners who may want share their experince or, alternatively, find out if there've been any orders near you maybe? The classico bikes near you is a long shot but they've sold internationally before.

Condor Classico

I have a Condor Classico with Veloce group set and absolutely adore it. It feels great to ride, is light enough despite being steel and it looks beautiful. Might be worth knowing that they've changed it slightly since the photo's shown on this thread. The tubing is still the same but the colour has changed (although I think they will custom paint), and they've gone further with the retro feel by adding a threaded headset. I might swap it for a Colnago Master X Light but not much else
